  • Really great conceptually

    By Eric Weldern
    The audio in the daily talk needs to be normalized. The talking is very quiet but then the laughing is so loud it breaks my eardrums
  • Love the app, but it keeps crashing

    By Ezekaiya
    The app is great for learning Japanese and also keeping up with the latest news. I love that it has so many different categories to choose from and you can easily look up words that you don’t know. However, the biggest problem for me is that the app crashes a lot when I try to look up words. This is really frustrating when I’m trying to read as fast as possible but end having to restart the app and find my place again. Please fix this and I’d be willing to upgrade to premium.
  • Nice concept

    Nice concept but it could do with a lot better on boarding process and explanation of its benefits. Additionally at this stage it constantly crashes when looking up words. Hopefully these hiccups get worked out quickly. It could turn in to something quite great!

  • ?good or bad?

    By Tokyo Pat
    App seems really useful but I can't figure out how to use it. The tutorial videos have no sound.
  • Incredible

    By すこっとB
    About a million times better than any other Japanese learning app I've ever seen. Articles + built-in dictionary + smart word tests = a whole lotta awesome
  • Keep getting error

    By オマック
    I can't get started because a 3840 error, and then it keeps loading forever. Not even the login with Facebook worked.

    If you've been studying for several years or have N3 or above this will be incredibly helpful. Hopefully, it'll just get better and better.
